Using Physics Gadgets and Gizmos, Grades 9-12: Phenomenon-Based Learning http://www.nsta.org/store/product_detail.aspx?id=10.2505/9781936959365 What student—or teacher—can resist the chance to experiment with Rocket Launchers, Drinking Birds, Dropper Poppers, Boomwhackers, Flying Pigs, and more? The 54 experiments in Using Physics Gadgets and Gizmos, Grades 9–12, encourage your high school students to explore a variety of phenomena involved with pressure and force, thermodynamics, energy, light and color, resonance, buoyancy, two-dimensional motion, angular momentum, magnetism, and electromagnetic induction.

Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction http://www.nsta.org/store/product_detail.aspx?id=10.2505/9781938946011 This was the most popular book at our recent #NSTA14 conference in Boston. Why? Because it's just so practical and timely!

Call for Papers: NSTA's award-winning elementary level journal, Science and Children, invites you to share your expertise, be recognized by your peers, and see your good ideas in print! In the coming year, Science and Children will be highlighting the seven crosscutting concepts identified in the Next Generation Science Standards. The standards identify these crosscutting concepts in the grade level foundation box and connect them to disciplinary core ideas for specific grade levels. A Framework for K–12 Science Education considers crosscutting concepts as being fundamental to understanding the nature of science. This year in S&C, we examine each CCC. We are seeking manuscripts that explain how each crosscutting concept is deliberately developed and revisited.
